Bio-Kult

$56.98 +tax

This is a therapeutic grade probiotic recommended for people on the GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) Diet.

According to their website: Bio-Kult is a unique multispecies, multistrain probiotic with 14 strains of beneficial bacteria. This means that Bio-Kult can deliver high concentrations of beneficial bacteria to the colonisation sites in the gut – and therefore be able to help a more diverse range of digestive disorders.

The beneficial bacteria in Bio-Kult are micro-encapsulated during the freeze drying process, which gives two main benefits:

1. They are protected from the harsh acid environment of the stomach and are therefore able to colonise the full length of the gastrointestinal tract.

2. The process allows Bio-Kult to be stored at room temperature without the need for refrigeration. Bio-Kult can be used on a continuous basis or for a short period of time, e.g. when taking antibiotics

Ingredients: Probiotic cultures [Bacillus subtilis PXN 21, Bifidobacterium spp. (B. bifidum PXN 23, B. breve PXN 25, B. infantis PXN 27, B. longum PXN 30), Lactobacillus spp. (L. acidophilus PXN 35, L. delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus PXN 39, L. casei PXN 37, L. plantarum PXN 47, L. rhamnosus PXN 54, L. helveticus PXN 45, L. salivarius PXN 57), Lactococcus lactis ssp. lactis PXN 63, Streptococcus thermophilus PXN 66], Cellulose (bulking agent), Vegetable Capsule (Hydroxypropylmethyl Cellulose).

Strength: Minimum 2 billion probiotic microorganisms per capsule (2x109 CFU/capsule), equivalent to 10 billion probiotic microorganisms per gram (1x1010 CFU/gram)

Storage: Store in a cool dry place - no need to refrigerate. Visit www.gapsdiet.com for dosage recommendations or use as directed by your health care practitioner or doctor.

 

Suitable for Gluten-free, Casein-free, Lactose-free, Yeast-free and Salt-free diets.

Blue Ice Butter Oil/Cod Liver Oil CAPS

$41.95 +tax

The butter oil is extracted from dairy milk produced by cows that graze exclusively on irrigated grass of the Northern Great Plains. The combination of climate and irrigation produces a rapidly growing specialized forage ensuring optimal levels of Activator X. Casein and lactose free.

Dr. Weston A. Price discovered High Vitamin Butter Oil in the 1930s, and believed there was an extremely synergistic effect between High Vitamin Butter Oil and traditional cod liver oil. He treated many patients with this combination.

Ingredients: Fermented Cod Liver oil, butter oil concentrated through centrifugation, unbleached beeswax as thickener, Plant cellulose (capsules), silca. Contains COD (Pacific Cod) Milk. Allergy Statement: This product is made from wild caught fish and may contain other seafood allergens such as shellfish.

Blue Ice Cod Liver Oil - Cinnamon Tingle Liquid

$41.27 +tax

Many of the great historical cultures had one sacred food which they relied on to ensure strong mind, body, and spirit: Fermented fish/fish liver oil. The Mighty Roman Soldier was given a daily ration of fermented fish oil. The Stoic Scandinavian Viking had a drum of fermenting cod livers outside the door of his home. Grandma always had a bottle of cod liver oil in the back cupboard. Nutrient assays, including vitamins A and D, for these fermented oils vary widely depending on methodology, lab and batch. Current science struggles to answer the questions we have on our sacred fermented foods. There are many naturally occurring metabolites and co-factors that make the issue of measuring natural nutrients difficult in the fermented oils. We do know that historical cultures liberally consumed these sacred foods to great benefit without today’s standardization of knowledge. Allergy Statement: This product is made from wild caught fish and may contain other seafood allergens such as shellfish.

Blue Ice Cod Liver Oil - Oslo Orange Liquid

$41.27 +tax

Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil in liquid form, flavored with organic orange and lemon oil.

Cod Liver Oil is know to have high levels of the omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, and very high levels of vitamin A and vitamin D. According to Blue Ice: "Fish oils have historically been fermented for extraction; back in the Roman empire days, Viking era and all the way up to the mid 1850’s. Rendering was introduced during the mid 1850’s as a more efficient fish liver processing method. The livers yielded a much higher total oil volume and the process could be accomplished in several hours rather than several months. What they did not understand is the effects that heat had on the nutrients; their science was not ready to address this question. As with all industrial models, the focus was on profitability, speed or turns and, marketability (taste)."
